Year 9/10 Visual Arts
Students in years 9 and 10 Visual Arts have been exploring several expressive forms throughout the year. In Term 1 they explored photography and the process of composing a story based on an understanding of process and a series of rules (Structural Frame). In Term 2 students explored the elements of art and developed their understanding and skills in creating a series of still life drawings and paintings.
This term students have investigated and practiced the art of Printmaking. Students have explored silk screen printing and have developed a series of prints that could be used on Tee shirts and textiles, cards or paper and canvas prints. Students have explored a variety of subjects such as hobbies and interests, animals, nature and text. Students have used the Cultural Frame that enables them to think about how we can use our values and beliefs to direct artistic expression, and also the Subjective Frame that allows us to determine how an artwork makes us feel.
All students are to be commended for their efforts and results in their Art works.
